COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.

The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.

The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS – A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75¢ for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

Thus is one of the best if not the best pilsners I have had. Great males and hop blend.

Bottle in New Orleans with Bobby and Lex. Pours a clear yellow with lots of head. Smell is classic pilsner. Taste is very ordinary for a pilsner but hides the alcohol extremely well. This beer could sneak up on you. Only a little alcohol bite to it but not noticeable after a bit.

I’m not a fan of pilsner, but I like this one. It pours a cloudy golden, with a shiny golden head, and a malty sweet aroma. The hops are light, but have an easy bitterness on the finish.

Pours a hazy yellow, white head. The aroma is grassy, malty, slightly sweet. The flavor is grassy, lightly spicy, some banana. The finish is spicy, noble hops. Medium in body. Not bad. Not exciting, but competently made, and enjoyable.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 19, 2013
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild malty aftertaste. The smooth flavor contained notes of mild citrus mild dough mild hops and crisp && clean. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Clear yellow pour with white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus and grains. Tastes of citrus and sweet grass. Don’t really like pilsner most of the time, but this is decent.

Tap at Stagshead this little brew pours yellow with white fluffy head. Nose of citrus and biscuits. Tastes of grass, pepper, earthy, biscuits and some pine. Decent and a cause I care about
